Clean, quiet, easy to find and convenient location

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for us. We had a little snag at check in but Jen helped us. The pool was great, the beach access was a little further than I imagined it but that was no problem. The shops next door were great. The room had all of the essentials to cook a meal and was well stocked for our stay. The ice is right next door and there was a washer and dryer (it was even free to use!) that was great to dry off our wet stuff and not have it hanging all over the shower... Stay here, take the ferry and visit the lighthouse, it's a great price and you wont regret it.

Great Spring Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Toes in the Water was just as described and photos are accurate. My husband and I enjoyed the weekend we spent there. Late March provided perfect spring like weather and there are enough business open to supply your shopping needs. Great gift shops and fried oysters at "The Point" ! We will be back. Thanks for providing a great place for a much needed break.

Great location, but needs some TLC

  • 3 of 5

While we had a terrific vacation in the Outer Banks, I would not stay at Toes in the Water again. I had high hopes for the unit as the staff at Leslie’s was ultra-responsive and gave great customer service. We got a terrific bargain for the week as well. Upon arrival, however, the air conditioning unit in the bedroom was disgusting – full of dirt and dust and a part of the grate was literally crumbled and no longer there. The front ac unit didn’t pump cold air even at the highest setting – it seemed to just bring in air from outside which was completely humid air. Seems that the homeowners realized this as there was a big dehumidifier in the living room which constantly ran and never got below 66% humidity. It constantly required emptying and if we didn’t empty it, the unit felt so humid inside. (Perhaps because we were next to the laundry room, the humidity was seeping in?) The kitchen was supposed to be “fully stocked” and while there were enough plates and bowls, there was 1 teaspoon, 4 forks, 3 table knives (which had seen better days)… it just wasn’t what I’d hoped for. We tried to clean a few areas in the room, but the vacuum in the room had basically zero suction. The king bed was comfortable and the setup of the unit was sufficient for us. The location was great – just across the street from the beach and right next to the ferry and shops. The property itself was fairly clean, but just had the feel of a motel to it with various people living there with their pets. The pool was nice though definitely not maintained very well and we had intended to grill, but the one gas grill on the property was broken. It just wasn’t what I had hoped for when booking it. Hatteras Island is a remote location, but there are a few places to eat nearby and we caught great sunrises and sunsets which made the trip worth it.
